“This event is aimed to help our alumni and members of the public become more effective Board members,” said Carrie Cason, President of the Hamilton County Leadership Academy’s Board of Directors. The session will allow a volunteer and executive director the opportunity to work together to create a plan to build a more effective board. “Many people commit to serving on a board because they are passionate about the work an organization does. There is much to learn about how to be an effective board member and how to build an effective board of directors,” added Cason.
At this session attendees will discuss how to identify, cultivate and recruit boad members; what should be done to orient new board members; encouraging board members to become active in the organization’s work and clarifying board member and staff roles and responsibilities.
